Disability Shetland has been active in the Shetland voluntary sector community for nearly thirty years and can trace its roots back to the Shetland Council for Disability which existed in the 1980s. The new organisation was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee on 12th October 2000 and is a Scottish registered charity.
The organisation, which is based in Lerwick’s Market House, is controlled by its own board of trustees and its office is currently staffed by a Team Leader who manages and supports the work of our club leaders, support workers and over sixty volunteers.
Disability Shetland is supported financially by a range of service level agreements, external grants, our own fund-raising events and most importantly, by the generosity of the Shetland public.
